As the school year comes close to an end, many people are looking forward to summer vacation. With so much free time on their hands, it can be tempting to spend the summer sitting around and doing nothing. However, many people find that creating a summer bucket list can help them make the most of their time off. A summer bucket list is a list of things you want to do over the summer. It includes anything from visiting other states or learning new skills. All you need is paper and a pencil to make a summer bucket list. The best bucket lists are the specific and achievable ones. There are a lot of benefits to doing this. 

One of the benefits of creating a summer bucket list is that it gives you something to look forward to and you have a plan, not just sitting around and doing nothing all day. It can be easy to get bored during the summer if you do not have anything planned. But having a list of fun activities can help you stay motivated and engaged in life. Also, another benefit is, you can step out of your comfort zone. Trying new things can be difficult, but it can help you grow as a person. 

It is easy to make a summer bucket list, but following it is the hard part. Following through with your plans can be challenging especially if you are used to spending your summers lounging around. However, with a bit of effort and determination you can make your summer bucket list dreams come true.  

You might ask “What do I put on my summer bucket list?” The answer is anything you like to do, like hobbies or interests. You should try something new because that is what the bucket list is about. Whatever you put on your bucket list make sure it is something that excites you and that you can realistically do. Some of the students at VMS are making a bucket list and you can too. Popular bucket list options can be going to a new beach or trying new foods. There are tons of activities to do inside and outside of your house. 

In conclusion, creating a summer bucket list is a wonderful way to make the most of your summer vacation. It is also a clever way to try new things you always wanted to do. What do you plan to do over the summer? Create a bucket list to plan and have the best summer.
